The gridiron and court sports have now given
over to the last of our major sports-baseball. Dur-
ing the period in which the University is being rep-
resented in athletic contests the players invariably
find that the time required for participation, botn
in the games and practices, makes serious inroads
upon their study hours. This is all the more no-
ticeable at this time of year, when the first balmy
weather acts as an added detraction.
Since the greater part of the athlete's afternoon
is occupied with workouts, he is naturally tired and
not in the mood for late studying. An interest
on the part of students taking the same subjects
as the athletes would-be of valuable assistance to
such men. -Men unable, through physical or other
reasons, to participate in athletics could, by a little
coaching, give the players the help needed to pull
them out of the hole. In doing this they would rot
only be helping the men themselves but would be
doing theschool a real service.
At its best, a genuine American sense of humor--
the sort that laughed at death on the Marne--is the
happiest in the world. For, though it may lack the
refinement and depth of certain other brands, it is.
ever kindly and optimistic. It makes us smile at our
own vexations, and the inconsistency of our fel-,
lows; but it is leavened with sympathy, and scorns
However, there are always plenty of persons to
abuse it. This keen perception of incongruity
alone, conducive as it is to self-analysis, often pro-
duces unhappy results; cowardly men who see their
own faults too clearly, find a cheap consolation in
holding up their neighbors to ridicule. Affecting an
attitude of outspoken cynicism to conceal their lit'-
tleness from themselves and others, they vainly ac-
cept the reputation for biting sarcasm as a tribute
to their wit.
Shrewd Doctor Johnson understood better than
most of us do the sort of self-deception that feeds
the vanity of these disagreeable weaklings. "Sir,"
he once said to an invariably satiric acquaintance,
"you never open your mouth but with intention to
give pain; and you have often given me pain, not
from the power of what you said, but from seeing
your motive."
If we must take a man, at his own estimate, sar-
casm is too liable to condemn him to be worth the
mean satisfaction he may derive from it. To publish
an incongruity that will rouse more discomfort
than mirth, when you can enjoy it alone, is thought-
less if not despicable. It is better to laugh in Amer-

This spring should mark Michigan's big season
the athletic world. The track team, having fin-
ied the indoor meets, now awaits for the coming
outdoor work and the many competitions it will
ing. Of the success it will achieve we have no
ir. However, the baseball situation now com-
ands our attention.
After- six weeks of steady work the squad is
ally beginning to round into Atid-season form.
ach Luitdgren and his men are not losing one
oment of this sunshiny ,weather, but are working
full speed preparing for that southern trip which
il begin on April 8.
The material this year has been unusually good.
very position on the team has two or more men
exceptional caliber trying for the berth. In the
:ching department Michigan has two of the best
liege pitchers in the middle west, and it is ex-
cted that they will prove themselves to be among
e best in college baseball today.
During spring vacation the team will journey
>uth and cross bats with four of .the leading
uthern universities. It will be Michigan's chance
make a favorable impression in that section of
e country. Our athletic teams can do much to es-
blish a good name for 'Michigan. They are the
al representatives of our school and the spirit that,
represents. "Success to the baseball squad"
ould be Michigan's slogan from now until the
>se of the season."

Thi e TelescopeI
Of all sad words of thought or pen
The saddest are "I must be in at ten."
A reader doubtless pondering over these words
has corne forward with this choice gem:
"They say that all the world's a stage,"
He said in honeyed tone.
She glanced at him- with look of rage,
That shook him to the bone.
'Twas'a look he could not bear,
And she answered then
With that fixed and glassy stare,
"'Tis true, but the curtain falls at ten."
A One Act Comedy
Scene-The sitting room in the Brown home.
Characters-Prof. Knowit, professor of physi-
ology, and his fiancee, Miss Brown, to. whom he has
now been engaged for three years.
Prof. (in an enthusiastic tone)-And thus it is
Myra that the whole human body changes in seven
years. (Myra by a suprement effort manages to
register intelligence.). You are Myra Brown noiv
but in seven years you will have completely
changed. Just think ! Not a particle of your pres-
ent self will be left but you will still be Miss Myra
Myra (rises to her feet, registering indignation,
and dramatically hands him the engagement ring)-
Never! I'll marry the milkman first.'
Dear Noah: -
I study so hard that I often have such violent
headaches that it seems as though my brains are on
fire. What can you suggest to relieve this?
Why, we are no physician, we think that if it
feels as though your brains were on fire, the only
thing to do is to blow out your brains.
A Real Tragedy
"Jack met with a very serious accident yester-
"How's that?"
"Why, he took Frank's girl out riding and the
machine gc4 stalled about six miles from' town."
"That's not a very serious accident."
"Yes, but Frank caught up with them before he
could get the car started."
Yes; Clarice, I think you are right in saying that
the deluge was the longest reign in history.
Famous Closing Lines
"Another tutor," he muttered as he gazed at the
amateur cornet player.

:f the custom of singing the "Yellow and Blue"
er such events could be inaugurated here at
chigan, a manyfold purpose would be served. In
first place this reservation of "the best" for the
t would result in a firmer respect for the song
.t means so much in the heart of every Michigan

ablishment than it possesses now.
Secondly, if sung at performances out of town,
would help spread the influence and prestige of
chigan spirit. And the alumni would certainly
lcome an opportunity to register their loyalty.
Eastly- the "Yellow anrd Blue" would be known
